Dubai to Dover - warts and wonders.

Having always wanted to pass through the Suez Canal, and with my wife wanting to visit Petra this cruise to Civitaveccia seemed ideal, tagging on the next part back to Dover meant the added bonus of no flying home - great. Our holiday started with a couple of nights in Dubai at the Ibis, Deira City Centre which is well situated for both Airport and Cruise Port being between the two. Also has a ...

Returned today from a 12 night Dubai to India cruise. Overall a very pleasant cruise due to the fabulous ports and combination of port and sea days. Check In was efficient, extra paperwork for India was needed but lot's of helping hands around handing out forms and pens. As on the previous cruise, which we learned later, around 70 passengers did not have a Visa for India and had no idea they ...

Just returned from the 12-night Dubai/India/Muscat/Dubai cruise on Brilliance of the Seas and thought we would share our experience. *THE CRUISE* We thoroughly enjoyed the ship and the itinerary. Nice mix of sea days and ports. India was dirty and polluted as expected but we had a great time at every stop. Plenty to see and do. The ports are not the prettiest by any means and can be a ...

Before the cruise we stayed five nights in Dubai on our own, so we had all the sightseeing there done in advance. Taxi from hotel to cruise terminal around 12.00 and embarkation procedure finished before 13.00. Cabin 1104, deck 10 aft, was waiting for us and we found a very nice-looking cabin with a really deep balcony with sunbeds and chairs. Our luggage arrived at 15.00. Lots of place for ...

just back from the brilliance of the seas. it was for us the first time in the middle east and had a different idea about the ports and rules. our suite was well but not so big as we had on other cruises and a little far from the action. But we choose him its our fold. the room was proper and clean. the food was good and the waiters also, but the place where we had the dinner was not what ...

Many thanks to all the info on this site. We returned on Monday from a great cruise on the Brilliance of the Sea out of Dubai. We loved the cruise. The food was better than expected- especially liked the large shrimp cocktail, lobster bisque and goat cheese tarts at dinner. We followed a tip and went to the helipad for each sail away- great views and not many people there.Our ship steward, ...

Just returned from a cruise on the BOS which we really enjoyed. We arrived at the port just before 9am and on the ship before 11am. Cabins were available at 1pm so we had lunch in the Windjammer when it opened. We were on Main seating for dinner and our waiter was Jing who was lovely so friendly and efficient. The food was on the usual standard we had experience before and we had no complaints ...
